Apparatus Damaged in Crash
A triple automobile accident in Ridgefield Park, N. J., caused apparatus of Hose Company No. 3 to be put out of service, and damage to the front of three stores.
The fire company was on its way to extinguish an automobile fire. Some one on the street saw an automobile coming out of an intersecting street and attempted to prevent the accident. The two vehicles struck and the fire apparatus mounted on the sidewalk crashing into a double store. The other car swerved to the opposite side of the street and plunged through the front of a store. Before the fire apparatus mounted the curb it had demolished the forward end of a third automobile.
